Patient Zeroes and High Fives

Here’s a good podcast that starts by looking at infectious diseases and the host quickly moves it on to being on the sources of some wll known infections, or their patient zeroes.  Then it moves on to look at the source of patient zeroes.  Finally in a bizarre final twist it moves on to look at the source of high fives.  Yes that’s right, high fives.  It doesn’t, as I was constantly expecting, link this uplifting expression to any particular infections at all, just an interesting gesture to throw in at the end, maybe aptly enough.  It is all well worth a listen (thanks to Sally Duncan for this one):
